Rose L. Horton, MSM, RNC-OB, NEA-BC, is the Founder & CEO of NotOnMyWatch Consulting Partners, an LLC she created 3 years after coining the hashtag #notonmywatch. She created the hashtag out of her frustration at the rising rate of maternal morbidity and mortality. 

As a nurse she believes that nurses, as the largest healthcare employee contingent, have the power to change the trajectory of morbidity and mortality and eradicate preventable stillbirths. The hashtag is a call to action for all nurses to use their collective voices to support, listen to, advocate for, and follow evidence-based practices in caring for all birthing people. 

Rose is a Women & Infant healthcare executive leader working as a Specialty Director at Emory Decatur Hospital. She is passionate about safe and equitable care for all women. Rose speaks on the topic of maternal mortality, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) locally, regionally, and nationally. 

Rose served as the 2012 President of the Association Women’s Health Obstetrics & Neonatal Nursing (AWHONN), a 25,000-nurse member association that is pivotal in creating, supporting, legislating, researching best practices, and evidence-based care of women and newborns.
